Subject: First Ever Movie Special Effect!
This very short film depicts the first ever "stop trick" special effect. This is the effect Georges Melies would later discover a year later in Paris when his camera jammed up which later spawned numerous special effects techniques.

Scary little film which is FUN!!
That's right, this film is FUN!!
Great special effects, epic plot, masterful suspense and an amazingly long lengh (17 seconds) makes this film FUN!
